You've lost me John!!
No matter. Try these two.
"University goes in for bondage, bounding one drunk. from which gas & water are taken?" (9)
( _ T _ L _ _ _ E _ )
The "E" in that pattern is contingent on "Woe Is Me" being correct for this:-
"Cyclops (setters name) has grief from females, endlessly, holding the centre of their lives" (3,2,2)
Alternatively try this anyone:-
Blair (not that is, one shielded by bum crazy fat kid)" (8)
( _ _ _ _ _ B _ M )
The "B" is contingent on ABSTENTION being a correct solution to this clue:-
"Failure to vote Lab (leader lacking, so intent on 'spinning') " (10)
Any help, as ever, gratefully received.
